I Want to be a College Man



I want to be a college man, mm and a little bit more;
I want to be a fraternity man mm, and a little bit more;
I want to be a SigEp man, who could ask for more?
Then I'll have all that's comin' to me
and mm and a little bit mm and a little bit mm
and a little bit more!

I want to date a college girl, mm and a little bit more;
I want to date a sorority girl, mm and a little bit more;
I want to date a Theta(substitute) Pi Phi & Kappa* girl,
who could ask for more? (etc.)
Then I'll have all that's comin' to me
and mm, and a little bit, mm and a little bit,
mm, and a little bit more!

I want to be a friend of yours, mm and a little bit more;
I want to be a pal of yours, mm and a little bit more;
I want to be a clinging vine, climbing up your wall...
and I'll have all that's comin' to me
and mm and a little bit, mm and a little bit,
and we'll have a ball.

Repeat ...

* The word "soros" for sorority is Latin for "sister."  The first such women's group to organize, separate from a men's fraternity, was the I.C. Sorosis at Monmouth College in 1867, but did not assume its Greek name of Pi Beta Phi until 1888.

The first Greek-letter women's fraternities were Kappa Alpha Theta, founded at what is now DePauw University, in Indiana, and Kappa Kappa Gamma, organized at Monmouth College, both in 1870

The "Monmouth Duo" is a celebration held at colleges and universities with active Pi Beta Phi and Kappa Kappa Gamma chapters in recognition of their founding at Monmouth! 

Oh, we proudly sing to Alpha Xi Delta's at Monmouth too! 



Brothers of the Golden Heart



Brothers of the Golden Heart

May we never ever part

Let us drink and let us boast

To our friendship raise our toast

Lift our glasses to the sky

True to SigEp till we die

Brothers of the Golden Heart

Bamboo Bungalow



I met a girl one day

She stole my heart away

I grew to love her and gave her my pin

She said she'd marry me

Now she's my SPE

Say boys that's how the chapter grows

I'll build a bamboo bungalow for you

Big enough for one but room enough for two

Then we'll be married happy as can be

Down in our bamboo bungalow for one, or two, or three or four,

Or maybe more, let your conscience be your guide

Between your chair and my chair

Well build a little high chair

And well call him SigEp Sam



Canoe Song



In a Canoe that's big enough just for two

My SigEp girl and I with nothing to do

But dream of our home

To which we someday will roam

To live there and always be true

Through the water gently flowing

Sometimes drifting, sometimes rowing

We are riding on together

My own girl and I

Starlight, gleaming, moon is beaming,

And winds are sighing

Clouds are flying

Softly, crewing, we are spooning

My own, SigEp girl and I



Memories



Sigma Phi Epsilon

The Men excelled by none

Because we stand for all that's strong and true

Oh the tie that binds my heart

I can never tear apart

For I love my dear old friends

Indeed I do



Anthem



Dear old fraternity,

All my life through

I'll love and cherish the mem'ry of you

Should harm betide me,

Thou ever will guide me,

Sigma, Dear Sigma Phi Epsilon true.

(hum the tune all the way through)

Sigma Dear Sigma Phi Epsilon True



SPE Marching Song



Oh  S-I-G-M-A Sigma P-H-I Epsilon

Well sing to thee and well drink to thee till the break of dawn

Oh with glasses raised on high

We here magnify all thy fame

What err they need by word or deed well glorify thy name

So come lets sing, sing, sing, Make the echoes ring

We're here to praise thy name

And the echoes will resound

For good fellowship we've found

In our Fraternityyy,

(Repeat x3)

HEY!



Rum Rum



Rum Rum the footsteps coming

Beats like the sounds of drumming

Beats for the voices humming

SigEps are we!

We march the road together

And we will sing forever

This bond will never sever

SigEps are we!

Mighty we'll always be a brotherhood of unity

Glory to the golden heart of our fraternity

Sigma our hearts are clinging

Phi through the air goes ringing

Epsilon will keep us singing

SigEps are we!

(Repeat)



Drink Beer



Drink Beer, Drink Beer,

Oh come drink a beer with me.

For I don't give a damn for any ole man who won't drink beer with me.

Bring out that old Golden Goblet with that SigEp Heart upon it,

And we'll open up another keg of beer, Keg of Beer!

For it's not for knowledge, that we've come to college,

but to raise hell while we're, raise hell while we're, raise hell while we're here..

And we will drink, drink, drink to Epsilon, and we will raise our glasses high,

Raise 'em High!

And we will drink to our fraternity, and we'll be loyal 'till we die, until we die

Oh how we love our sacred brotherhood,

And we will laud it to the sky-i-y,

And when the day is done,

We will drink just one,

To Sigma Phi Epsilon!

Drink beer!



Wonderful SigEp Girl (Sweetheart Song)



Of all the girls of college years,

There's one that I've loved long.

For me she wears a golden heart,

For her I sing this song.

[Chorus]

My Sigma Phi Epsilon Sweetheart.

Wonderful SigEp girl.

True as the heart that you're wearing

You set my heart in a whirl.

Violets and roses

My love discloses,

Say that you love me too.

My Sigma Phi Epsilon sweetheart,

Wonderful SigEp girl!

The SigEp Call



A great old bunch of brothers are the SigEps

No finer in this land will there be found

We use the slogan always stick together

And help a brother when he's down

No matter if in business or in pleasure

We rally to the SigEp call

The whistle that is known by every member

And means so much to one and all

(whistle)

We whistle it with all our might

And oft you hear it day or night

(whistle)

The whistle of SigEp Fraternity

(whistle)

We whistle with all our might

And oft you hear it day or night

(whistle)

The whistle of SigEp Fraternity



The Heart of SPE



The Heart of SPE is gold and circled round with pearl

It shows the love I'll always hold for you my SigEp girl

I promise through eternity our love will ner grow old

Your SPE will loyal be

His heart is made of gold



Medley: In the Evening by the moonlight



(solo)

In the evening by the moonlight

You could hear those SigEps signing

In the evening by the moonlight

You could hear their voices ringing

How the old folks would enjoy it

They would sit all night and listen

As we sang in the evening

By the moonlight

(together)

In the evening by the moonlight

You could hear those SigEps singing

In the evening by the moonlight

You could hear their voices ringing

How the old folks would enjoy it

They would sit all night and listen

As we sang in the evening

By the moonlight

Turn the lights down low boys

And sit by the fire's glow

Where warmth and good fellowship is in every good fellow

Sit by the fireside glow

Dream of things you love boys

And what are you dreaming of?

The days that have left us

Are the days that shall be

For some little someone you love

(solo)

So ill take my pipe before the fire

And hear my brothers sing

Those good old-fashioned songs we love

With fellowship will ring

(together)

And well all join in the chorus gathered round the fire so bright

Till one by one well separate

To meet again tomorrow night

So Ill take my pipe before the fire

And hear my brothers sing

Those songs we love,

We love so well.



Blessing



Oh Lord bless this food to our bodies

And Sigma Phi Epsilon to their service

For ever more

Amen.



Fidelity



We've taken the oath of fidelity

To cherish to have and to hold

We stand on the threshold of brotherhood

With heart as strong as it's bold

We've taken the vow that will ever bind

Our brothers and us as one

Each pledge we have made we will follow through

Whatever the task we've begun

(one brother)

I've taken the oath of fidelity

To cherish to have and to hold

I stand on the threshold of brotherhood

With heart as strong as it's bold

I've taken the vow that will ever bind

My brothers and I as one

Each pledge I have made I will follow through

Whatever the task I've Begun

 

We've taken the oath of fidelity

To cherish to have and to hold

We stand on the threshold of brotherhood

With heart as strong as it's bold

 

We've taken the vow that will ever bind

Our brothers and us as one

Each pledge we have made we will follow through

Whatever the task we've begun.
